Simple Charts – Evening with the Master Class

This is the method of trading I learned when I first started trading, and it remains my favorite today. It uses simple lines, a few simple mathematical projections borrowed from the early Greeks, and simple, repeatable patterns to produce consistent profits. You can apply this method to daily, weekly and monthly charts. The advantages to trading using this method is you can trade in your spare time and it does not take all day staring at updating bars on a chart. You do not need expensive charting programs, and costly data feeds. Once you learn this method, you spend a lot less time and money on trading. And the best part? I think it’s much easier to be profitable using this simple method! Look at recent results:

Trading Results for 2019

Total Trades: 9           Winners: 9        Losers: 0           Average Risk/Reward:  5.0

Beginning Account Balance: $100,000 Portfolio Gains:  $158,401 2019 Ending Balance: $258,401

Trading Results for 2020

Position sizing adjusted to reflect net results of prior year

Total Trades: 2            Winners: 0        Losers: 0           Average Risk/Reward:  5.9

Beginning Account Balance: $258,401 Portfolio Gains:  $180,075 2020 YTD Balance: $338,476

I had 11 winners and no losers in this program’s first 12 months of trading – I don’t expect the winning percentage to be anywhere near 100 percent. I would be happy with a winning percentage of 50 percent; With a Risk-Reward of 3.0, 10 trades with a winning percentage of 50 percent would net $66,883, using the actual average winners and losers from the program’s 2019 trading results.[1]
